The Columbia Restaurant Group will once again be supporting Suncoast Charities for Children, and several other local non-profit agencies, during their 26th Annual Community Harvest program during the entire month of September. The Tampa-based restaurant group is donating 5% of all diner’s checks to local charitable organizations in communities near their various restaurant locations. Here in Sarasota any customers dining inside or ordering takeout, at either the Columbia Restaurant or Cha Cha Coconuts, are able to choose a charity from a ballot that is included with their check or write in the charity of their choice. Both restaurants are located on beautiful St. Armands Circle. Once the program ends, the Columbia Restaurant then provides each charity with gift certificates that can be used for up to 12 months. Over the past 25 years, the Columbia Restaurant Community Harvest has donated $3 Million to non-profit organizations throughout Florida.
